Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is caused by the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) in the deep veins of the leg.
Prolonged immobilisation results in an increased risk to develop DVT.
Additional factors can increase this risk even further.



  • In 1846, Rudolf Virchow described the factors of relevance for the development of DVT. Virchow's Triad still is valid nowadays:


    • Anti-embolism stockings
    • Anticoagulation
    • Phlebotropic drugs
    • Early mobilisation of the patient

    Comprinet® pro – the modern anti-embolism stocking for the prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis

    Comprinet® pro applies a continuously decreasing pressure gradient from distal to proximal in line with medically recognised levels of compression.1
    Comprinet® pro effectively helps prevent deep vein thrombosis by increasing blood velocity and helping reduce venous stasis.
